Diorama Charm -- Creative Upcycling + Stash with the UnstampaBelles

The UnstampaBelles May challenge is Creative Upcycling with the twist of Use something you've had in your craftroom for a year or more. You can make whatever you like without using any stamps.

May diorama charm was inspired by this upcycled necklace, and depicts our house & neighborhood.

I painted the inside of the plastic cap with glittery black paint, drilled holes in it with my Dremel, andcovered the sides with a glittery black tape. The cityscape was cut on my Silhouette Cameo; the treeline was cut with a MFT die in my BigShot. The fence & squirrel were die-cut from shiny white Shrinky Dink plastic and shrunk in my toaster oven. The pieces were inked with alcohol & distress inks. For the flat side, I colored a wood veneer house with Copic markers and adhered it onto a purple paper circle. I used a glitter pen to make a dotted boarder, and added rub-on sentiments from Tim Holtz.  The rose bead was heat-embossed with a purple powder. The double-sided silver charm is from my stash.
